Abstract or Summary
  • The Wallowa County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) enhances collaboration with wildland fire protection agencies to reduce the impact of wildfire on lives, property, and the landscape and to coordinate management of Wallowa County wildland-urban interface (WUI) lands in a manner that protects communities and local values at risk from wildfire. The plan contains information to help land and homeowners develop strategies that address protection from wildfire. The plan also contains information to help land and homeowners and work with land managers to address landscape or community level fuels mitigation. Goals of the CWPP include: -Promote wildfire awareness and target fire prevention and safety information across at-risk communities. -Promote cooperative emergency fire response, identify available resources and needs, and review interagency communication and suppression strategies. -Identify, assess, and reduce hazardous fuels, coordinate risk reduction strategies, and prioritize fuel reduction areas and projects. -Complete annual monitoring and evaluation to assess progress and effectiveness and recommend changes as appropriate. The Wallowa County CWPP is a working document. It will become the wildfire section of the Tri-County Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan. Some strategies and activities could be individually accomplished by landowners but the CWPP is not intended to mandate treatment activities. It is provided only as a resource and guidance document.
